Review & Installation Video

Review & Install Video

Hey, what's going on, guys? Adam here with Today I'm bringing you a detailed overview and installation of the MBRP Race Series Cat-Back Exhaust, fitting all 2011 to 2014 Mustang GTs. Now, in addition to that sound clip you just heard, I'll be going over the sound expectations from the MBRP Race Series Cat-Back which, I'll let you know, will get a solid four out of five on our loudness meter. Then I'll go into the materials and construction. I'll even walk you through the installation which, I'll tell you again upfront, will get a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, something any novice can take care of with the right hand tools. So let's jump right into it. The MBRP Race Series Cat-Back Exhaust I have with me today will be for all 2011 to 2014 Mustang GT owners out there looking to replace their stock, boring exhaust with something that will literally wake up the entire Coyote exhaust to give it a loud, very aggressive muscle car growl that will literally wake the neighbors. Now, with the sound clips you just heard, this MBRP Race Series Cat-Back will definitely, definitely be an upgrade over your factory exhaust. Now, I hate to say it, but those factory pipes can be kind of a disappointment for the Coyote engine there, which is a very respectable horsepower-filled motor, and you might wanna wake that thing up. With the Race Series exhaust, you are getting just that with a race-inspired sound, giving you a loud, aggressive muscle car growl that, like I said before, can wake the neighbors if given the right modifications. Now, with that said, this one is gonna get the four out of five on our loudness meter simply because it is louder than a lot of options on the site here, but not the absolute tippy-top loudest. This one does give you a very head-turning, noticeable sound here that you definitely expect from that Coyote S197. Now, with this option in mind, MBRP does offer the Street Series in addition to that Race Series exhaust that I have with me today. Now, the Street Series will give you a deep muscle car growl without being too overly obnoxious and too raspy. The Race Series, though, with that race-inspired sound, will be a bit raspier, a bit louder and, like I said a million times - I hate to say it again - will probably wake those neighbors, whereas a Street Series probably won't. So it'll definitely depend on your personal preference, how loud you wanna go, how much you wanna spend. And in addition to that, there's also the aluminized version and the stainless steel. Stainless steel is what I have with me today. Now, as far as the difference between the aluminized and stainless steel version that I have with me today, the aluminized might not be as pretty-looking, it might not be as polished, and it also might not even last quite as long as the stainless steel. But the stainless steel here, obviously, is the better-quality material overall for a longer-lasting durability and does have that polished, attractive shine, but all-in-all you won't be able to see it anyway. It'll be right under the car. But either way, it does come down to how much you wanna spend with that one. Now, you might be asking, "How does this exact cat-back give it that Race Series-inspired sound with the loud, aggressive note?" Well, it's all gonna be thanks to the materials and construction here. We do have high-flow mufflers that will be replacing your completely restrictive factory mufflers to really open up and give it that loud, aggressive Race Series feature. Now, in addition to that, you get 3-inch stainless steel tubing here for durability, corrosion resistance, all of that good stuff you'd expect from a very high-quality exhaust system. Now, from the 3-inch tubing all the way at the back end going into your mid-pipe, it actually steps down to a 2.7-inch tubing to fit perfectly into that factory mid-pipe for a direct bolt-on installation. Very simple and a huge bonus for the install, which I'll touch on in just a bit. Now, on the complete opposite end here - we have it hiding back here - is the 4-inch, massive stainless steel polished tip that'll be coming out of the rear end of your 5.0 Coyote, looks absolutely attractive with the rear diffuser here, and will fit perfectly. Now, with that said, this whole system is gonna be pretty reasonably priced for something that is very high-quality, but will be at the top end of the market here compared to other options, and I'll touch on that in just a second. Now, with all those materials and the construction in mind here, it's all gonna wrap together into the price tag. And like I said, that price isn't gonna be the most expensive, but it will be up there on the higher end of the market compared to some of the other options. For this kit itself with the high-quality stainless steel, the high, free-flowing mufflers and, of course, the huge 4-inch stainless steel tips with the polished finish, expect to be spending about $550 here. Again, not the most expensive, but it will be at the top end here. A lot of bang for your buck with this kit here with a very loud, very aggressive race-inspired design. Moving on to the installation portion of the video, like I said in the very beginning, this one is gonna be simple enough for any novice to take care with very light mechanical skills required, and a ratchet and a simple socket set will do the trick. Now, with that said, all you'll have to do is unbolt and unclamp your factory cat-back system from your mid-pipe all the way back to your tailpipe. Now, with that said, when you unclamp it, pull them off the hangers and set them aside. All new hardware will be included in the kit for you, and you'll just have to reinstall the Race Series from MBRP in reverse order and, of course, given that 2.75 drop-down, will bolt directly up to your factory mid-pipe with ease. Again, I'd say about an hour's worth of time, maybe two, in the driveway at home. It will be getting one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. Well, guys, just to wrap things up here, if you're the owner of a 2011 to 2014 Mustang GT and you're looking for a way to replace your restrictive, factory cat-back exhaust with something that will completely wake up your Coyote S197 and give it a loud, aggressive race design, you might wanna check out the MBRP Race Series Cat-Back Exhaust which, of course, is available right here at

I've had these installed on my 2013 mustang gt for about 2 weeks now. I feel like this has to be the best bargain in the exhaust market. T409 stainless steel at this price? Not many players in this price ...

Hello fello Stang owners, I currently only have the Roush Axle backs on my exhaust, everything else is stock. Will I be able to keep the Roush axle backs on this setup if I didn't like the muffler sound from this system?


Helpful (0)
  • The mufflers from this exhaust kit are able to be taken off, but the over axle pipes may not be a direct fit with the Roush Axle-Backs. If you look at the angle each piping is bent at, they are slightly different. You may need to do some modifications in order to have proper fitment.


Bolting up with a BBK X pipe. Hey Mustang friends, I'm just wondering if this catback system will fit with the mid BBK x pipe? I've recently installed the x pipe to my flowmaster axle backs, but still have the stock small mufflers after the x pipe on it. Thank you!


Helpful (0)
  • Should not be a problem due to the X pipe fitting the factory catback. You can see in the picture the connection to the x pipe is smaller in diameter to fit inside.


should I get another Bama tune if I get the MBRP cat back and H-pipe? I have a JLT CAI and a Bama tune for my car and am about to get the H-pipe and cat back installed. should I get another tune?


Helpful (0)
  • Hello everyone! This question gets asked a lot, the official answer is if you are buying a cat back or even just a axle back you do not need a tune revision for your car.

    Exhaust sounds amazing. Gives it a really nice muscle tone to the car! Also really nice on the cold start ups! Would recommended it to anyone who is looking to buy a cheap exhaust! Had to take it to a shop to install because I couldn't get the car high enough is the only downside.

    Great product and value!

    I am very pleased with my purchase. I had them put on my daughters 2014 GT and it completely changed the car. The price is unbeatable and they look great. The reason for buying after market exhaust is to change the sound of your car and these catback exhaust sound better than I could have imagined. It has a low rumble that just sounds the way a GT Mustang is suppose to sound. They sound better than the Magnaflows I have on my 07 GT. I'm even thinking about changing out my magnaflows for MBRP on that car.

    What a bargain!

    I've had these installed on my 2013 mustang gt for about 2 weeks now. I feel like this has to be the best bargain in the exhaust market. T409 stainless steel at this price? Not many players in this price range. I wanted a really aggressive exhaust sound without breaking the bank. I was very torn between this system or the flow master outlaw system. I feel like this system isn't quite as aggressive as the flow master system, but it is more refined. The outlaw system had a good bit of "poppy" "raspy" noise at time. This system doesn't have that. It hits the aggressive low tones without the over-bearing harshness of the raspy tones. As other reviewers have said, there is some drone in the cabin around 1800-2000 rpm range. It doesn't bother me, and I don't think it will bother most car people. I can't wait to add the Headers and off-road x pipe to this cat back system. I feel like that will open the aggressiveness up even more. Would definitely recommend these to anyone looking for budget friendly, quality exhaust

    Mbrp catback

    Bought this catback after hearing some clips on YouTube. I wanted something different then the regular Borla, Slp, Flowmaster, ect. Took me and friend about 3 hours to install. Finish was some of the best quality I have ever seen. Fit was good. The only thing was that on mine the tail pipes didn't come out far enough like I wanted. Still not that big of a deal. They come out a bit short. At least mine did. After the install. I fired it up, boy was I impressed! Sound was deep and crisp. I had muffler deletes and no cats. I was shocked it was not as loud as I thought. Especially compared to the deletes. But still loud and I actually like it better. I think this is the best bang for the buck catback out there. I'm the only one around my city with this distinctive sound. Turns heads and I get compliments all the time now.

    If u want old school sound, u want this exhaust.

    Can't say enough good things about this exhaust. Got it on cyber monday sale with the MBRP 3" H-pipe. This system really gets the heart pumping. Awesome exhaust note especially at wide open throttle. I get the thumbs up everywhere I go with it. There is some drone in the 1800-2200 rpm range (75mph w/3.31 gear). It is noticeable, not loud enough that you have to shout to have a conversation. Also noticed that the car does have a little more kick in the mid-upper rpm range. No change in mpg's (who really buys an exhaust for fuel efficiency?). Fit and finish was great, a tight fit over the axle. Install took about 3 hours on a lift for the h-pipe and catback. NOTE: The 3" H-pipe is NOT REQUIRED for this system. I have contacted AM regarding this and hopefully they upgrade the product description soon. The catback system was designed to work with the OEM 2.75" H pipe (if u get the 3" h pipe you will have to cut about 3 inches off of the catback system that was narrowed down to fit the original h pipe). There are videos on Youtube for this exhaust.

    Everything I wanted

    This was a great buy for me. I bought the combo H Pipe and Cat Back Exhaust and took it to my local muffler shop to get it installed. I took it during my lunch break from work and they had it done by the time I was out of work. I didn't know what to expect when I got there and I was hoping it was the sound I wanted so I asked the mechanic what he thought and he told me its pretty sick. They were asking me where I got it and how much it was because they themselves were impressed with the system. Well as soon as I turned on the car I was blown away by the sound. I felt like a kid on Christmas morning who just opened up the present he wanted for a long time. The drive home was great and the drone wasn't bad at all. Overall I'm very very pleased with my purchase and can't wait to drive my car again. It's brought back that feeling I had when I first bought my 5.0. Pure bliss

    Oldschool rumble that screams!

    I wanted a good set of stainless steel cat-backs to get rid of my stock mufflers and my resonators. This was a great match for the stainless steel Longtubes headers and matching mid pipe I ordered as well. I have to say installation of these are a breeze! My best suggestion to get these installed is by using a lift, because of how tricky the over-axle piping is to both remove and install. The fit an finish is top notch! I knew right away after opening the box I made the right choice. After a few months of going through some heat cycle's the piping has turned this awesome gold color. Which is awesome because it makes for great photos. Since all of the piping is stainless steel I will never have to worry about the piping rusting, which is fantastic! Now on to what we all want to know. The sound these admit even from an idle is just amazing. With the longtubes I have on my Coyote it just makes the ground rumble around the car. At WOT these mufflers just straight up scream! Nothing is to terribly over the top with noise levels which is awesome for every one you, you're neighbors, even that hot date you have going to the movies with you.

    Freaking awesome!!!!!

    I absolutely love this exhaust. It's was so easy to put on as long as you have a full lift. It sounds so freaking aggressive and clean I love it but it's not too bad that you can't hear yourself think. It does drone at about 2,000 rpms but isn't that what you buy an exhaust for? To hear it all the freaking time?! It also lightens the car a good amount getting rid of the stock mufflers and I'm pretty sure my car is a little quicker. I couldn't be more satisfied. Definitely a bang for your buck

    Wonderful sound

    the main reason i bought this cat back is after looking up on you tube all the different sounds of other cat backs out there i liked this one best. It also helped that it was at a minimum it was $100 dollars cheaper. that being said. i did this by myself with only a floor jack, jack stands, and a block of wood. taking the stock exhaust out was the worst part, i ended up having to cut the extension pipes to get them out. Putting the MBRP cat back on wasn't very hard it mated fine with the stock H-pipe, i love the two piece over axle to mufflers and the moveable exhaust tips. the sound is amazing i've only had it on a week and have had multiple complements. only negative is there is a slight drone from 1800-2100 RPM

    sounds mean but not to angry until you hit it

    Install was straight forward and pretty simple. Hand tools only needed. Use of air tools will speed things up. all parts needed were included. Was here in a day with standard shipping. Fit is perfect. Lots of adjustment on the tips for a few different looks. It sounds amazing. Idle is a nice deep rumble. Slight drone around 2000 rpms. Has a different sound similar to MagnaFlow race cat back but with a cleaner tone and no rasp. Best bang for your buck on American muscle by far. I couldn't be happier.

    Sounds the way a v8 should

    Got this system on sale and for the price i dont think you could find a better product. It gives the car a nice rumble at idle, sounds great when you step on the throttle and has a nice pop when you let off. It is a little loud in car when going about 70mph and up an incline but i bought it so i could hear the car so no complaints from me.

    Expected Better

    I bought this for my 2014 Mustang GT a few months ago. I couldn’t get my car jacked high enough to get the factory over axle pipes off so I had to shop install the kit. The kit uses the factory clamps for the H-pipe to mid pipe connection and supplies clamps for the over axle pipe to muffler connection. The slip joints on all the MBRP exhaust parts are to loose and the clamps (Both factory and MBRP supplied) don’t have enough clamping force to hold the piping in position for any significant length of time. So the exhaust rattles and the rattle is very noticeable. The exhaust note is aggressive and I get a lot of positive comments from people. The drone is a bit cumbersome on long road trips. I wish I could give a higher rating and would if it would have fit together better.

    Great value for the money

    Has a nice deep rumble at idle, very loud at WOT with just a touch of rasp. Even without a tune throttle response was noticeably improved. The only downsides to this exhaust are the drone between 1900-2200 rpm(not unbearable but it's there), as well as the passenger side fitment was a bit off. Install took about 2 hours with a lift and In my opinion the tips could stick out 2 inches farther but overall, great value, great sound, would highly recommend this exhaust.
